Rubber fume and rubber dust

Employees working in the industries processing and working with rubber products are likely to be exposed to hazardous rubber dust or fumes. Exposure monitoring for rubber dust and fumes is a complex process involving collection of personal samples and analysis for rubber dust, potentially carcinogenic fumes and other compounds such as nitrosamines. Some of the compounds might not be used directly by the manufactures but can be created during different stages of the rubber curing process.

Our assessors are familiar with processes occurring during various types of rubber processing and can offer competent advice and implement comprehensive workers protection program. Rubber fume and dust monitoring program ensures that all the employees working with the rubber products are effectively protected.

Most at risk are people working in:

  • Plastic manufacture industries
  • General rubber manufacture
  • New tyres manufacture
  • Used tyre re-treading and recycling
  • Plastic recycling and reuse
  • Plastic moulding

We will provide your organisation by thorough assessment program during which we will evaluate your employees exposure levels to rubber fumes and dust, evaluate the existing engineering control measures, carry out check of the implemented procedures, and evaluate secondary routes of exposure such as dermal contact and the requirements of employees' health surveillance. We will ensure that you as a duty holder are fully compliant with the current regulatory requirements.
